South Coogee House in Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

The client had just purchased the site, a small but stunningly located oceanfront property with panoramic views of the Pacific, when they were introduced to me. As I had just gone out on my own after many years as Associate Director at a successful mid-size firm I didn’t have much to show that I could prove as “my own”.  After a detailed selection process the client chose to engage me for the design of their new house, probably based on a lot of trust in my ability and the fact that we got on very well on a personal level.

House 784 in Cheshire, UK by Stephenson ISA STUDIO

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Stephenson ISA STUDIO

The house is sited on a tree lined suburban road in Cheshire and was designed for a young family couple. On the road, the house types are suburban; conservative, bland and mock traditional. Our approach was to create a fresh contemporary version of the suburban house type; one that reacts to its context and is tailored to suit the specific needs of the client.

Hue Apartments in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Article source: Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Hueis a 5 storey apartment building that sits within a post industrial streetscape inLord Street,Richmond. The site is bound on 3 sides by large 2-4 storey brick warehouse buildings whilst across the road are the rear yards of residential properties. The brief was for a multilevel apartment building that maximised yield on the site. Our design strategy was to imagine the site as a landscaped island within its austere industrial surrounds.

The Gold Line Bridge in Arcadia, California by Andrew Leicester

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Leicester 

As the largest, single public art/transit infrastructure project in California, we believe the Gold Line Bridge would be a very unique and special entry for coverage. The Gold Line Bridge has set many precedents. The Construction Authority wanted the art to lead the engineering, so an artist was hired before the architect and contractor. In 2010, the Construction Authority put out a national call and selected Andrew Leicester, an award-winning public artist from Minnesota.

Campanules House in City of Brussels, Belgium by EXAR Architecture

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Article source: EXAR Architecture

The previous house offered tiny opening to the garden. The “back” rooms, kitchen, bathroom, previously considered as services, blocked the views from the house to the nice garden. We decided to keep these functions but to open them widely, by creating large windows. The kitchen – dining room offers an large open view to the vegetation. The bathroom has focused view to the trees.

The new Adamsville Regional Health Center represented a rare investment of public resources in a sparsely developed, sometimes overlooked section of Atlanta. It would have to serve not only as a medical facility, but also as a catalyst for cohesion and future growth in the neighborhood.
